I used to work in La Spezia 35 years ago, and first discovered La Nuova Spezia then. When we visit, we stay in Lerici (packed with restaurants) but always come in to La Spezia to eat here. The welcome is friendly, the food is tremendous, and very much shows some of the best of the local cuisine. We visited again... More

Initially I was hesitant to go to this restaurant as the reviews made it sound gimmicky. I was wrong. It was a very memorable experience for me. in fact it was the highlight of my trip in Italy. Compared to restaurants in other Italian cities I've been to, this was the best experience and service I've had. As you know,... More

If you are in La Spezia you cannot miss this restaurant. The service is very good and quick. The portions are very big. There's plenty of choice of plates with pasta, meals and fish. I would recommend the plates with fish. Last but not least prices are very reasonable.

We arrived far too early for Italy (6:30pm) but were welcomed in by the owner who proceeded to recommend what we should have for starter, primi and then secondi. The recommendations didn't disappoint and it was re-assuring to see that the towards 8pm as the restaurant filled up with locals they were all going with the same options. The owner... More

Don't be deceived by the front of this place, it's nothing fancy but once you step inside you are welcomed with open arms. The staff are friendly & the meals huge & the seafood is FRESH. The owner is very friendly making sure you are happy with everything all thru your dining experience

One of our favorite nights on our Europe trip. My wife found the place on Trip Advisor and reading the reviews we knew we were in for a good night. Francesco was a very funny little fella and entertained us for the whole night. I think we spent 4 hours there. Ended up sitting in the other room with the... More
